Coach Isabelle Bienvenu knows ballet is more than an art form—it’s also a way to keep the body healthy and strengthen it for other sports and activities. A choreographer, dancer, and competition judge as well, she brings her wealth of knowledge to each one-on-one session, wherein she helps her students develop their skills and improve their abilities.
For more than 25 years, Broward Pawn & Gun has specialized in buying and selling handguns, shotguns, and rifles—and replacing them for free. This is because a guaranteed lifetime replacement backs every Davidson’s firearm the shop sells. Customers can leave with their purchase confident in the knowledge that as long as they own the gun, they can exchange it or bring it in for free repairs. The staff rounds out its firearm selection with guns from other makers, such as Browning and Glock, along with an array of ammunition, hunting gear, and optics. And to keep its patrons knowledgeable on the fundamentals of safe gun ownership, the shop hosts concealed-weapon-license courses two days a week, taught by an NRA-certified instructor.
The team at Unico Estilo Unisex Salon uses a variety of products from well-known brands such as L'Oreal, Kérastase, Wella, Alfaparf Milano, Matrix, and Goldwell. The friendly staff specializes in haircare, coloring locks during single-process-color applications or rendering tresses frizz-free with keratin treatments. A licensed massage therapist complements the beautifying options presented by the rest of the staff, performing massages in modalities such as Swedish, hot stone, and sports.
Though Elite International Dance Academy began with only a few classes and a handful of students, the studio earned a growing following with its combination of accessible instruction and enthusiastic teachers. Since its opening, the studio has tripled its curriculum to include 15 dance styles, including the hustle, fox trot, belly dancing, bachata, and salsa. Both kids and adults gather in the academy’s noncompetitive environment, where instructors teach dance steps with easy-to-follow directions. The schedule also includes summer camps and workshops, as well as Zumba classes—cardio workouts using Latin-inspired dance routines to sizzle more calories than toasting marshmallows dipped in lighter fluid.
